In calm spaces

Words fall like feathers

Light empty spaces filled with promise

Reaching states of peace and calm

Expanding the thin tall room

The place where soothing winds blow through curtains

And silence fills the soul.

Heart beat echoes where there is heard

A repetitive breath slow and sure

Moving in and out like dreams come true

A place borne of knowing

It always moves back to home.

Lungs fill with yellow light beaming

And the warmth folds into the softest skin

Scents of jasmine and pine drift on breezes

And the tendrils of thought rise above the ceiling

Unable to be contained they flow outward

Into the energy of the morning that finds

A friend waiting to share

Of piece of peace

Touching down gently there

In an open hand ready

For simplicity.

Thoughts as I sit here on a comfortable morning, roused a bit early by the hounds who decided it was time to awaken and enjoy the peace together and wait for the sun to find us patiently waiting in eager joy. Good morning world, and happiest Thursday.

  1. I think we all have the dark monsters hidden away like a box of creepy old broken toys, sometimes we get them out just to remember them, and then often wonder why we lock them back up for future use? The mind is a funny thing….peace and💜

  2. Haha, yes on the positiveness. I think it helps keep me sane too….life is too short to not dream and be filled with joy, and to write with joy buoys my spirits many times too, I am glad to be a part of your circle….I think it began with the name, my favorite character on Big Bang. Your artwork makes me smile and wonder what goes on in those dark staircases and heads with hands, etc….peace my friend,
    Always,

  5. I wrote segal early on
    Writing and art has always been a part of me
    In one way or another
    I was a chef for some 35 odd years
    I’ve done all sorts of creative jobs
    Even catering
    I’ve always look for creativity in everything I do
    Met my wife in a creative writing group
    If you can name it I have done it
    I was even an apprentice blacksmith
    The list goes on
    Anytime I can share my experience
    I am always willing
    You should go way back in my posts
    You will see all sorts of interesting tibe bites
    As always Sheldon

  6. Well then I look forward to that with eagerness. How long have you been writing for? Was it something you did when you were younger? What came first, the writing or the art? Just curious to learn more😊 about a creative genius😊

  7. I’ve had it reserved for a time when I could give it its full due and honor. I only saw three and it said of six….are there more in there somewhere? It is an intriguing piece, shall I ask what the inspiration was behind it? If you’d rather not say, I understand. Great work Sheldon, as always you shine in your stories.
    Peace and love,
    Always,

  9. Thank you Michael, just trying to get the hang of the new computer. I can’t take pics with it so for now it will be internet borrowing to suit the words. This journey is excellent and I have a family member visiting which makes it that much more special. We enjoyed a nice conversation about the universe and how as you ask, all you want/need will be provided, about belief, etc….they are at an art show today and this morning have already had two appts to do some work, they were quite happy and repeated back some of what we had discussed the night prior. Little nudges of awesomeness. Enjoying the peace and tranquility of this schedule, getting things done in due time and not sweating the small stuff 🙂 peace and love my dear one, K

  10. A very soothing piece, Kim. I felt a light arrive while reading this, something wonderful with the weight of a feather… Glad to see you’ve made the journey and gotten back on-line. I’ve been a little out of touch myself, but your words here put me back “in touch” with all of it…

    Peace
    Michael

  11. Every day they never cease to let me know when it’s time to rise and shine, especially after they roll around on the bed licking me and relishing in belly rubs….then Stretching, a half cup coffee and walk, walk, walk…..the new routine😊

  14. Thank you Mary, I wish I could have jump started your day but everything comes to us when the time is right so perhaps today I can squeeze one in mid day to surprise you. In the meantime, have a morning filled with good thoughts, precious sounds of nature and a heart filled with lightness and peace. Happy Friday my friend, 💜🌸🌻🌹☀️K
